Advice upgrading to 188.8.131.52 UPDATE
Firstly the download update button that appears in the dashboard doesn't work for ANY of my sites. I either get an error or a blank white page.
Secondly when I do it the old fashioned way according to the notes. After replacing the root/concrete folder and going to tools/required/upgrade it says I'm already up to date.
It says the latest version is 5.4.1 and you are up to date despite me uploading the 184.108.40.206 concrete folder into the root.
So I don't know what to do now...
So I managed to do it by uploading the update into the updates folder (surprise surprise) but the question is.
If this is the only way to upgrade, then the old documentation should be taken down, its circa 5.3, and also do you need to keep very upgrade folder in the upgrades folder?
Now I have concrete 5.4.1 folder and concrete 220.127.116.11 folder in my upgrades folder. Will this folder fill up with upgrades or can I delete some of them safely...
I tried it on two sites, replaced the concrete folder in the root install and went to the upgrade page and it didn't see it.
I actually manually created an updates folder for a few sites to get around this, however I still got errors trying to do it this way.
It seems if you do have an updates folder then manually copying over the new concrete root folder will NOT work.
If you don't (have an updates folder) manually copying over the new concrete folder WILL work.
mmm all a bit messy...
where'd those come from? or links to what?
Here is a portion from a source view of my home page;
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/updates/concrete18.104.22.168/concrete/css/ccm.base.css?v=b37d7e2bfdbbed46103da48217976d09" />
Then run the upgrade script.
For future reference.
I am a little stuck as well - I tried the automatic upgrade which resulted in a blank screen after what seemed halfway through.
I emptied the updates folder, downloaded the full install version and replaced my /concrete/ folder with the one from the full install.
Still, just a blank page.
Has anyone any advice for me? I'd greatly appreciate your support!
Many thanks in advance!
I try myself to update and it has never work. So I finally give up and restart with a fresh new installation. Naturally, in my case, it was more fussy 'cause my version of concrete5 was in french!
I hope in a near future that all this will be thing of the past.
Have fun ;-)
Holy S**t it worked beautifully. Like some of you, my /updates folder was also empty, but alas I decided to upload the 5.5.1 folders up in that /updates folder. Then went into the dashboard settings and hit the update button *which NEVER worked before* and it said *Upgrade to 5.5.1 successful* My jaw dropped like a cartoon characters..
So it worked for me, it may work for you, or the usual swap /concrete folder may work. But, if one way fails, try the other. Just remember to back up back up back up before doing major brain surgery on your websites!!
